您有否从古代的耶路撒冷发现过任何一件物品?请不要错过一次真正的考古工作机会。

圣殿山筛分工程是一项独特的计划,开放给所有公众参与,让你的手稍微弄湿一点,就能触摸到第一和第二圣殿时期及以后的真正宝藏,发掘出能够揭示古代生活方式的文物。

这项计划的成立是基于一次不幸的事件。大量满载着无数考古文物的土堆,被非法挖出,从圣殿山的大院中移走。圣殿山从未被允许过考古挖掘,这些土堆正好给了我们一次难得的独特机会,来揭示埋藏在圣殿山土壤中的考古文物。因此我们构想出一个创新的解决方案,从这大量的土壤中发掘出埋埋藏的宝藏:我们开发了一种湿筛分技术,让耶路撒冷的居民和访客能一同参与搜救、发掘古代文物,有分于耶路撒冷圣殿山的文化遗产。

超过20万人参与了筛分这古老的土壤,使这项计划成为世界上最多公众参与的考古项目。迄今为止,从这些土堆中已经找出数千件文物,包括硬币、圣殿地板瓷砖、古代武器、印章等等。

您也可以寻找出这历史的一部分,把它存留给后代!每个特殊的文物发现都会与其发现者一起被记录下来。一些找到极罕有文物的访客也已公布在全球媒体上。各位感到兴奋吗?请即加入我们行列,谁晓得您会发现到什么!

“你的仆人原来喜悦她的石头,恩待她的尘土。”(诗篇102:14-15)

如何参与筛分?

圣殿山筛分活动历时两小时,其中包括一个介绍讲座、筛分指导、筛分实习和活动总结,指导员会在小组里解释所发现到的文物的重要性。每一桶筛分过的土壤都包含着圣殿山各个时期的文物。

筛分工序不需过份体力消耗,参与者也不会弄脏,但可能会弄湿。现场条件适合所有季节。

参与者应提前预约。

重要提示:圣殿山筛分工程已经搬家,不再位于我们原先Zurim Valley National Park的设施,该处仍然用作其他考古地点(非圣殿山)的土壤考古筛分设施。

Volunteering

We are happy to accept volunteers, but since we need to invest in training volunteers, we ask potential volunteers to commit to at least fourteen days of work, and to be prepared to carry out work involving physical effort or office work (such as labeling pottery sherds). Volunteers at the site receive three days of training, which enable them to accompany groups and check the sifting results of visitors.

We do not provide transport or meals for volunteers, who are asked to make their own way to the site and to bring their lunch.

Please arrange voluntary work in advance, by calling us on +972-2-5665491 during work hours, or by email: contact@tmsifting.org.

Volunteers who would like to volunteer at our lab are may apply by sending their resume/CV to: contact@tmsifting.org. We will make contact with you if you meet the necessary requirements.

We are currently looking for help in the following areas: counting artifacts and data entry, studio photography, graphical editing and programming in ACCESS and SAS.

Archaeological students interested in helping out voluntarily as research assistants are likewise welcome to send us their resume.
